Smile Which book should I buy for Red Hat Certified Specialist in Server Security and Hardening exam(EX413)?


I'm new to Linux.

I wanna take this exam but cannot find a dedicated Red Hat Training book for it?

The Red Hat Certified Specialist in Server Security and Hardening exam(EX413) syllabus is:

Identify Red Hat Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) and Red Hat Security Advisories (RHSAs) and selectively update systems based on this information

Verify package security and validity

Identify and employ standards-based practices for configuring file system security, create and use encrypted file systems, tune file system features, and use specific mount options to restrict access to file system volumes

Configure default permissions for users and use special file permissions, attributes, and access control lists (ACLs) to control access to files

Install and use intrusion detection capabilities in Red Hat Enterprise Linux to monitor critical system files
Manage user account security and user password security
Manage system login security using pluggable authentication modules (PAM)

Configure console security by disabling features that allow systems to be rebooted or powered off using bootloader passwords
Configure system-wide acceptable use notifications

Install, configure, and manage identity management services and configure identity management clients

Configure remote system logging services, configure system logging, and manage system log files using mechanisms such as log rotation and compression

Configure system auditing services and review audit reports
Use network scanning tools to identify open network service ports and configure and troubleshoot system firewalling.

Which book would you recommend?
Many Thanks

I don't know about "books" but all the RH docs are here - see especially the ones marked 'Identity Management' & "Security"

@hrism01 EX413 (currently) uses RHEL 6.4 technologies, nothing to do with RHEL7 (systemD).
